Hello!

I'm completely new to the game and I have a question regarding the usage of the word "adjacent" in regards to moving, attacks, grenades etc.

1. I guess when the rulebook mentions "adjacent" in general it only means the squares directly up, down, left, right and NOT the diagonal adjacent squares. Correct?

2. There is only the exception of Melee Attacks where it is also possible to target Enemies in diagonal adjacent squares. Correct?

3. So for the the "Zone Controller" special ability this means: The penalty to hit applies to all 9 adjacent squares (melee range of 1), but the possibility of a free attack (enemy leaves the square) only applies to the 4 directly adjacent squares. Correct?

Thanks in advance!
Bert

In 1st edition, adjacent meant only the orthogonally adjacent squares (up/down/left/right). However I believe since 1.1 edition it now includes diagonals. But I'll need to recheck that.

Are you playing with the 1.1 box? If you are playing with 2.0 rules then go to Battlestations: Second Edition to post the question as I think it is about to become a LOT more active....

No, we are playing 1.1. Unfortunately nobody in our gaming group owns the 2.0 version.

Technically - no one owns it yet - but they're about to be mailed out soon...

They will be mailed out very soon.

Adjacent now includes diagonally adjacent. Although you can't walk into that square, you can affect it with your zone controlling.
